so, you may have to turn on the heater in the car for just a few minutes and knock the chill out of the air and then look at how we warm up today. we're up to 71 degrees in cupertino and san mateo 67 degrees and the financial district 68 degrees and as the seven-day forecast comes up at the bottom of the screen, we will have a cool down for the start of next week. enjoy this while it lasts. above average the north bay, as well as the east bay. fremont today up to 71 degrees. and we still have some melting snow but quite on the ground. at the summit we have 161 inches of snow and at the base we still have 65 inches of snow at squaw valley. we will have a change in this pattern that may bring in a little bit more snow for the sierra, but the bay area looks to stay dry as high pressure continues to keep those weather systems and the jet stream well to the north. this carries those areas of low pressure and allows for some rain to drop in. we will have that low dropping
6:18 am
in from the north. kind of an interior-type storm and that won't bring much in the way of moisture, but could bring in some light snow showers farther off to the east of here and cooler temperatures for the bay area. we are looking at a nice, warm start to the weekend. the first half of the weekend looks nice. highs in the low 70s up to 66 degrees in san francisco. and nothing but sunshine all day long. but then we start to see some clouds mixing in on sunday. 70 degrees in the north bay. while we do have some lower 60s in san francisco. we'll bring those temperatures down just a few more degrees, but, overall, a nice weekend ahead. now, mike's tracking what's happening on the san mateo bridge. anything going on? >> nothing but thing commute. that's great news for folks traveling northbound. high rise, you see eastbound coming towards us and map shows you the same thing. for anywhere north of there, we see the typical build. the bay bridge toll plaza metering lights are on. the crash getting away from the
